Scene: A grocery store parking lot. I'm walking in, they're unloading their groceries into their Lexus SUV.

[Little girl pointing at me and emphatically tugging on her dad's shorts]

Girl: Look Daddy! A Chinese man! Watch out, Daddy! A Chinese man!

The dad turned beet red and looked like he wanted to crawl into a hole.

I didn't stop for any clarification. Just shook my head at the dad, sighed disappointedly, and went in the store to buy some groceries.
